Magic is real. But it has rules, rules that must be strictly adhered to, and the penalty for abuse is soul-death.

Jack stumbled into the secret one night when he was high on a mixture of Jimson weed and marijuana that should have been fatal. Luck favoured him, however, and he escaped with the power of mind-reading and weak telekinesis.

Always one to make the most of everything he soon found a way to capitalise on these gifts, making a fortune out of sexually frustrated older ladies and careless casinos.

People liked him, but they didn’t know Jack.

    Good story. I get the feeling there could be more to come...? :-)

    Thanks Chris! Yes, I think there might be more to Jack - perhaps in a longer story! :) (It was a funny little drabble, I started with the last line and it just grew from there!)
